Mrs. Vals is really nice. She tries almost everything to help us understand the material and gets us to pass class. She's really caring and her maternal nature melts my heart. She doesn't know that I appreciate her in maybe ways but she is a wonderful person despite her humane flaws that people rant about. She's forgiving and very loving.

Vals plays FAVORITES and much of her teaching is unclear and most of the time useless. So far, I feel my progression in that class is ZERO! She is repetitive and expects too much. Her grading scale does not favor students but only favors students to fail! Action must be taken! (if you are plannign on taking any english classes with vals junior year, I recommend taking Brit Litt Honors)

okay teacher, unclear at times, her monotonous voice makes me want to go to bed. her mood affects her teaching-which isn't good because many times she is in a bad mood.

she expects to much of her students and her teachings arent so useful. she is repetitive a lot also. is too emotional which gets in the way of her teachings if thats what you call it. plays favorites so much thus if you have her in some years, be social with her to get a good grade. hope this helped

I think she does play favorites. You really have to try to participate in her class. But she's a good teacher and trys to think of what would be best for her students. =o)

teachings could improve because it feels like it doesn't help and she does play favorites and you shouldn't have 2 try to become a favorite cause that's pitiful

Mrs. Vals is a great teacher whom you can talk to outside or inside of class. She treats you as an individual and listens to you. One of the many great teachers out there.

In AVID, she can get too mean at the class. Yes, she totally plays favourites. Do'nt understand why she worries so much about her image.

She DOES play favorites! If you're not one of them and you ask her a question she'll look at you as if you're not worthy to talk to her.

She tries not to show it, but she plays favorites. Class is okay, but could be better. I liked her more as middle school teacher than high school.
